Covered with pines, the Ciampinoi mountain rises to the south of Selva Gardena sheltered by Sassolungo, a majestic peak in the Dolomites, which towers above it.
The Sassolungo summit dominates Val Gardena with its three residential areas. From the valley bottom the visitor can admire the Odle, Cir, Sella, and Sciliar peaks in the immediate surroundings, the Tofane further away in Veneto, the Ortles and Adamello groups in the west or even some distant mountains in Austria.
In winter the ski runs, which have been known since the late 1930s and hosted the 1970 Alpine Skiing World Championships, offer fantastic descents towards Selva Gardena, Santa Cristina and Plan de Gralba.
The lifts and slopes of Ciampinoi are linked to the famous Sellaronda ski circuit, which allows the skier to ski all four valleys surrounding the spectacular Sella Group.
At the top station of the Ciampinoi gondola
